Our dinner was excellent, service on point. Utensils came individually wrapped in paper,
bread came in a basket wrapped in plastic. Tables spaced appropriately. Will be back.

Just the night out we needed after being vaccinated. Yes its a bit of a splurge but it is worth it. Generous pours from the bar. Recommend the Prime aged rib eye - it easily feeds 2 guys & the warm octopus appetizer. all 3 salads what you'd expect & no attitude if you split it. Tried the apple crisp. will try something different next time.

If you want to catch COVID or something else, dine here! 35% capacity all crammed into 25% of the entire space! Tables too close to each other. Barriers between tables are open at the bench seat sides so you’re eating 1-2 feet away without protection from the table next to you. I supported them with take out and crazy high tips for the past year and treated poorly when dining in.
Hostess was not nice and had a bad attitude. I arrived 10 minutes early and was told if I get seated the 90 minute table limit starts then or I could wait until my reservation time and then be seated. Table was empty, it was an early reservation and what did it really matter if I sat down ten minutes early? Perhaps I might have had an additional cocktail and increase the total spent? Poorly managed.

Always an excellent time at T-Bar. The food is consistent, whether it’s the Rib Eye or the Chicken Milanese. Cooked to perfection with a helpful staff. It’s one of the restaurants that I always come back to time and time again

The food is always fantastic here, the service top notch and the ambience very nice. Covid-19 is taken very seriously, with social distancing, silverware sealed in plastic, temp checks, hand sanitizer and beautiful partitions between the tables. The bread is absolutely amazing, especially the rosemary one and the olive filled one. Love it here.

I took a friend for dinner for her birthday and we sat outside on a nice night. I noticed there were no heat lamps but fortunately we did not need them. Our waitress, Katie, was great. We shard a sushi appetizer and I had the Sea bass and my friend the Filet Mignon. both were prepared very well and delicious.
We shared a strawberry shortcake dessert which was a great ending to a wonderful meal.
Here is where I was a bit shocked. The prices were quite expensive (probably raised them due to Covid). I have eaten here many times before and I don't recall spending this much on dinner.
Since, it was for a birthday celebration I brushed it off but not sure it is a place to go for a "bite" to eat at these prices.

We dined at TBar on Sunday and they are doing an amazing job with this covid situation. Prewrapped silverware for each course. Service was wonderful and attentive. Hubby and I had a wonderful meal and I’m so glad Brussels sprouts are back! We sat inside and they have partitions between tables and windows open for ventilation. Cant wait to go back!

Way TOO COLD inside with windows open. I understand Covid concerns BUT not an enjoyable dinner. Guess we’ll wait til weather warms up or Covid is GONE.

The salad with poached shrimp was tasteless, Iceberg lettuce and the dressing had no taste.
The french fries were good.
A glass of wine was $19 and the cab was nothing special
